19641 Ambassador Spat
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48937120

>Sir Kim Darroch has resigned as UK ambassador to the US, amid a row over leaked emails critical of President Trump's administration.

>The ambassador said he wanted to put an end to speculation, adding the leak had made it "impossible" to do his job.

>Theresa May said it was a "matter of great regret" that Sir Kim felt the need to resign, saying officials needed to be able to give "full and frank advice".

This whole situation has been pathetic. How long before Johnson is literally kowtowing to the Trump dynasty I wonder?

One of the key points of an embassy is that people can tell the candid truth about what the government there is like. The problem here isn't that he said anything wrong, he didn't he told the truth as he sees it, which is the whole point of his job. The problem is that Trump is the kind of petty fuck who wouldn't allow him to do his job properly after this.

But the problem isn't just Trump, the problem is the servile Tories who were making exclaimations in the glory of Trump. This could have been an unfortunate incident, but instead it has become a tragedy. One that announces to the world that the UK is this easily bullied and browbeaten, and for doing nothing more than telling the truth, a truth evident to anyone who's looked at a headline or two in past three years.

I never hated the Tories before this year, I never liked them much either but there we have it. However, they have made every attempt available to them in 2019 to undermine, shame and hobble the United Kingdom, and not for any misguided ideological reasons, but out of sheer arrogance and self-interest. If I read a headline that every single one of their MPs had collapsed dead in parliament I don't think I'd even bother reading the article, I'd just knod in acknowledgement and move on.

Thank goodness we don't have to stand alone and have the collective power of 27 other countries to back is up, right lads?

Er, lads?
